Peavey is gutting its regular guitars and inserting Guitar Hero components for its new "Riffmaster" series. In addition including a guitar that probably sounds better than a regular Peavey, the $2,000 kit includes a complete PA system and a floor monitor. Unfortunately, we found the guitar to be a bit heavy for Guitar Hero use, particularly when activating star power, and since the buttons are spaced the distance of regular guitar frets it was pretty hard to play. Not much info on a release, but it's coming soon.
